Flash Fact: Flashpoint Has Begun!

Flashpoint

Flashpoint #1 is available now! 


This is Flash Fact: When Barry Allen wakes at his desk, he discovers the world has changed.

Close friends are different, gone or worse. It's a world on the brink of a cataclysmic war - but where are Earth's Greatest Heroes to stop it?

Welcome to FLASHPOINT!

When Flashpoint #5 arrives, it will be the only DC Universe comic shipping that week! Industry rumors suggest a line-wide reboot of the entire DCU.  Some have suggested every book will start with a new # 1.

 

While many of us have tired of reboots, I actually think this is smart on DC's part.  Movie interest in these characters is at an all-time high, but when potential new readers come into the shop they often get turned off by a series that is up in the 600s or higher.

 

I still recall reading the original Crisis on Infinite Earths.  DC Comics had originally planned to reboot the entire line, but changed their plans mid-stream.

 

If done well with solid stories, DC could please long-time readers and entice new blood.  And if you really prefer the prior stories (in my Marvel, Peter is still married to MJ), they're out there in back issues or collected editions.

 

Batman Gates of Arkhamic  

Batman Gates of Gotham 1

Batman Gates of Gotham #1

 
When a mystery as old as Gotham City itself surfaces, Batman assembles a team of his greatest detectives - including Red Robin, Owlman, I-Ching and others - to investigate this startling new enigma.

As clues are discovered and the mystery deepens, Batman's team soon finds itself on a journey that explores different eras in Gotham's history and touches upon notable Gotham families including the Waynes, Kanes, and Elliotts.

This miniseries spins out of recent events in the Batman titles and sets the stage for several exciting storylines in 2011.

Additionally, this limited series touches upon mysterious story elements introduced in Grant Morrison's RETURN OF BRUCE WAYNE. Featuring many exciting Batman Family guest stars!

 

ALSO THIS WEEK:

 

BATMAN # 710

 

Two-Face is back! As an unknown villain targets Two-Face and other Gotham City crimelords for extermination, Batman discovers that Kitrina Falcone, a.k.a. "CATGIRL," is next on the hit list! Can he save the junior mobster in time? And will helping Kitrina force Catwoman to get involved?

 

BATMAN AND ROBIN # 23

 

Jason Todd - Batman's one-time sidekick, currently the anti-hero known as Red Hood - has been imprisoned in Arkham Asylum for the past several months. But after a period of good behavior, will a transfer to a lower-security prison mean reformation for Jason Todd . . . or is trouble waiting in the wings for Batman and Robin? Don't miss "The Streets Run Red" part one of three!

X-Men Giant-Size # 1

 'FROM FIRST TO LAST'

 

Think you know everything there is to know about the original X-Men? Think again! Something happened to Cyclops, Marvel Girl, Beast, Angel, Iceman and Professor X years ago, a secret so horrible that it has been locked away in the dark corner of Cyclops' mind until today.  

 

What crisis strikes in the present that calls upon memories of the past? Witness the astonishing debut of the Evolutionaries!  

 

Taking the lead for a few issues is famed X-Men writer CHRIS YOST (X-FORCE) and with all this danger, he's lucky to have regular X-MEN artist PACO MEDINA and DALIBOR TALAJIC (PUNISHER) along for the ride.
